This is a collection of images in preparation for my “Towers” exhibition at the Barbican Library, 1st to 28th February 2019.
The aim of the exhibition is to show the character and history of the tower blocks visible from where I live. My window looks North over Finsbury, Islington and Camden. I can see 25 blocks, dating from the 1960s. I aim to document all of them. I will also include pictures of the Barbican Towers.
There are two galleries below, these are work-in-progress. The first shows pen and wash watercolours, done on location. The second shows etchings and prints, which I will also exhibit.
All images will be for sale. The pen and wash will be available for sale as framed and unframed digital prints, because the originals are all in sketch books. I will also exhibit the original sketch books. The original etchings will be available for sale, both as pictures and as greetings cards.
Click an image to see it larger, then click the cross in the top right to return to this page. You can see a really big image by clicking the image, then looking for the “Fullsize” button in the square of information which appears under the “comment” symbol at the bottom right.
Here are the prints. These are made by hand from etched and drypoint plates.
